At Town Hall on 1/3/2009, 10 oz glass appears brown and pink with a small head and no lace. The aroma is raspberry. The flavor is of mild malt sweetness and raspberry tartness. The palate is pretty watery. I’m not a big fan of this batch. Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 21, 2008
Belgian Raspberry Brown
Dark ruby tinted ale, full head, pinkish-brown.
aroma, all raspberry...bountiful berry...lovely stuff. Somewhat sweet, somewhat tart, very fruit, and very, very nice.
Big carbonation, then all is mellow after the first sip, but the fresh fruit flavor persists. Lean in body, there’s a brown ale beneath, with somehow discernible Belgian yeasty qualities.
In short: it’s berry-licious!
In long:...nah, I can’t...it’s still berry-licious!
a perfectly delightful ale. WeeHeavySD (3387) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 7, 2007
Growler from Hellomynameis, shared wtih bikesandbeer. Pours copper with a big 3 finger tan head. Nose has some subtle raspberry in it. The taste is sweet, and light and has a decent albeit light bit of raspberry. Its a little thin but has some nice drinkability to it. Not great to terrible.

(on tap at Town Hall) Pours red/brown with a white head. Somewhat weak raspberry on the nose with a faint hint of yeast too. Taste is quite similar to the nose with some faint raspberry and a yeasty finish, somewhat thin, expected something better. zeke626 (460) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2007
Beer release as part of the 10th anniversary celebration. Brown body with reddish tones. Nice natural, vine raspberry aroma. Light to medium bodied with light raspberry flavors at the front of the palate turning to more malty and yeasty flavors near the back. The palate is a bit thin for my taste and the finish too weak, albeit clean. Flavors seem a bit more subtle than I would have liked.

Nice dark red color. Light fruit aroma. Raspberry is prominent in the flavor, along malt that is on the dry side. No hop presence, and that is fine. An easy to drink, pleasant beer. But it is far to thin and dry to be a Belgian bruin. hellomynameis (876) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - OCT 25, 2007
dark maroon colour. Aroma is raspberry bush. The flavour is laregly raspberry, like fresh off the vine, but has some malty beeryness. Probably the best raspberry beer ive had, pairs well with the subtle belgian qualities. BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 25, 2007
nice brown red color with a thin white head. Sweet raspberry aroma with no sharp, tart bite. Solid sweet malty body with a dominant berry character. Candy sweet finish.
